  1. Elaine Lawless coined the term "reciprocal ethnography." It's a way of doing ethnography where the researcher shares their observations with the individuals and communities they are observing and then includes the resulting dialog in their results. Its aim is to produce more ethical work by giving voice to the communities and people involved.
  2. This book focuses in particular on the importance of women's narratives and is an important resource for women's studies departments and feminist scholars in the era of the #metoo and #timesup movements. Lawless' work on reciprocal ethnography and women's studies are considered to be her major contributions to the field of folklore.
  3. The book includes a foreword by Folklorist, Amy Shuman, which places Elaine's work into context, both historical and its relevance to the field.
